− Total revenue of $119.0 million, up 12.6% year-over-year (20.6% FX neutral)

− TTM free cash flow of $123.6 million, up 25.6% year-over-year

− Online bookable listings of approximately 465,000, up 130% year-over-year

AUSTIN, Texas, April 23, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HomeAway, Inc. (Nasdaq:AWAY), the world's leading online marketplace for the vacation rental industry, today reported its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015.

Management Commentary

"HomeAway achieved big steps forward on several important priorities during the first quarter, including the launch of our global marketing campaign and a surge in online booking adoption. Today we announced some leadership changes and we're taking this opportunity to realign our leadership team to position the company for the next stage of HomeAway's growth," says Brian Sharples, chief executive officer of HomeAway®.

Mr. Sharples continued "Overall we were pleased with our Q1 results despite continued foreign exchange headwinds and some weakness in our European subscription business. The early indications from our marketing campaign were positive and I'm thrilled that we're back in the marketing game in a significant way. We had a blockbuster quarter for our online booking initiative, with 465,000 listings now online bookable due to both the popularity of the PPB product and a record number of subscribers adopting this feature. Our aggressive push into ecommerce and online booking is on track to achieve our goal of making nearly all our listings online bookable by the end of 2016."

First Quarter 2015 Financial Highlights

  • Total revenue increased 12.6% to $119.0 million from $105.7 million in the first quarter of 2014. On an FX neutral basis, year-over-year revenue growth was 20.6%. Growth in total revenue primarily reflected an increase in listings, an increase in average revenue per subscription listing as a result of tiered pricing and bundled product offerings, and the benefit of ancillary product and services revenue.
  • Listing revenue increased 8.7% to $95.0 million from $87.3 million in the first quarter of 2014. On an FX neutral basis, year-over-year listing revenue growth was 17.9%.
  • Other revenue, which is comprised of ancillary revenue from owners, managers, and travelers, advertising, software and other items, increased 31.1% to $24.1 million from $18.4 million in the first quarter of 2014. Growth in other revenue primarily reflected increased adoption of value-added owner, manager and traveler products.
  • Net loss attributable to HomeAway was $(2.1) million, or $(0.02) per diluted share, compared to net income attributable to HomeAway of $4.4 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2014. Net income for the first quarter of 2015 was impacted by tax expense of $3.6 million, which was higher than pre-tax net income due to the mix of pre-tax income and losses in various jurisdictions.
  • Adjusted EBITDA decreased 3.4% to $25.3 million from $26.2 million in the first quarter of 2014. As a percentage of revenue, adjusted EBITDA was 21.2% compared to 24.8% in the first quarter of 2014. This change reflects a significant increase in investment in our global integrated marketing campaign, which launched in the first quarter of 2015.
  • Free cash flow increased 16.8% to $45.3 million from $38.7 million in the first quarter of 2014. On a trailing twelve month basis, free cash flow increased 25.6% to $123.6 million from $98.4 million in the comparable trailing twelve month period for the prior year.
  • Non-GAAP net income was $10.6 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $13.2 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2014.

Key Business Metrics

  • Paid listings at the end of the first quarter of 2015 were approximately 1,086,000, a year-over-year increase of 14.1% from approximately 952,000 at the end of the first quarter of 2014. At the end of the first quarter, 724,000 of the listings were subscription listings and 362,000 were performance-based listings. We have phased out our legacy pay-per-lead product and removed certain pay-per lead listings from our sites. Absent this change, listing growth was approximately 16% in the first quarter of 2015.
  • Average revenue per subscription listing during the first quarter of 2015 was $472, an FX neutral increase of 15.7% compared to the prior year.
  • Renewal rate was 71.6% at the end of the first quarter of 2015, compared to 73.1% at the end of the first quarter of 2014 and 71.7% at the end of the fourth quarter of 2014. Adjusting for the impact of consolidated listings and network bundles, renewal rate for the first quarter of 2015 would have been 72.4%, compared to 74.9% at the end of the first quarter of 2014 and 72.6% at the end of the fourth quarter of 2014.
  • Visits were 287.0 million during the first quarter, a year-over-year increase of 17.1%.

Corporate Developments

In a separate release issued today, HomeAway announced organizational changes, including a realignment of its leadership structure.

Brent Bellm, president and chief operating officer, is resigning to pursue other opportunities, effective in June. Brian Sharples, co-founder and chief executive officer, will resume the role of president and Tom Hale, chief product officer, will assume the title and newly defined role of chief operating officer.

Separately, Carl Shepherd, co-founder of HomeAway and chief strategy and development officer, has announced his intention to retire in the second half of the year.

In connection with the leadership departures, HomeAway announced several leadership changes:

  • Jon Gray, Senior Vice President of the Americas, will become chief revenue officer
  • Jeff Hurst, Vice President Global E-commerce, will assume the role of chief strategy officer
  • Jeff Mosler, Senior Vice President of Global Customer Experience will become chief service officer

The organizational changes position the company for strong continued growth and leadership in the vacation rentals category.

Business Outlook

Looking forward, chief financial officer Lynn Atchison says, "Our outlook reflects the near-term impact of the strengthening U.S. dollar, which we currently estimate will reduce full year revenue by approximately $40 million, or nine percentage points of growth, compared to the prior year. Our forecast has been further updated to reflect the popularity of our PPB product in Europe and lowered expectations for our European subscription business. As a reminder, our marketing investment in 2015 will be more pronounced in the first half of the year due to production costs and the seasonality of our business."

HomeAway management currently expects to achieve the following results for the second quarter ending June 30, 2015 and full year ending December 31, 2015:

Second Quarter 2015

  • Total revenue is expected to be in the range of $122.0 to $124.0 million, representing year-over-year growth of approximately 7% to 9% (FX neutral growth of approximately 18% to 20%).
  • Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $22.5 to $23.5 million, or approximately 18.4% to 19.0% of revenue.

Full Year 2015

  • Total revenue is expected to be in the range of $493 to $500 million, representing year-over-year growth of approximately 10% to 12% (FX neutral growth of approximately 19% to 21%).
  • Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $119 to $123 million, or approximately 24.1% to 24.6% of revenue.

The above statements are based on current expectations and actual results may differ materially as explained in the "Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-looking Statements" below.

All information provided in this press release is as of the date hereof and, except as required by law, HomeAway assumes no obligation to update this information, even if new information becomes available in the future.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures: Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow, non-GAAP net income and revenue adjusted for foreign currency. Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow, non-GAAP net income and constant currency revenue are financial measures that are not calculated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or GAAP. HomeAway defines Adjusted EBITDA as its net income (loss) attributable to HomeAway, Inc. plus depreciation, amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, interest expense (income), other expense (income), net, impact of noncontrolling interests, all net of income taxes. HomeAway defines free cash flow as its cash provided by operating activities, adjusted for cash interest expense and excess tax benefit (expense) from stock-based compensation, and subtracting capital expenditures. For the purpose of calculating free cash flow, HomeAway considers purchases of property, equipment, tenant improvements for its offices, and software licenses (including costs associated with internally developed software) as capital expenditures. HomeAway defines non-GAAP net income as its net income (loss) attributable to HomeAway, Inc. adjusted for the changes to the redemption value of noncontrolling interests and the after-tax effect of stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, amortization of debt discount and issuance costs, net of amounts capitalized, and the impact on noncontrolling interests of these items, utilizing a tax rate of 35%. The income tax effect of adjustments to non-GAAP net income assists investors in understanding the tax provision related to those adjustments using a tax rate of 35% related to ongoing operations. Revenue adjusted for foreign currency, which we refer to as constant currency or FX neutral revenue, assumes foreign currency exchange rates used for translation based on the rates in effect for the comparable prior-year period. In order to compute constant currency revenue, HomeAway divides its monthly U.S. dollar results by the applicable current year monthly average foreign exchange rates and then multiplies those amounts by the applicable prior year monthly average foreign exchange rates.

HomeAway management believes that the use of Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow, non-GAAP net income and constant currency revenue are useful to investors in evaluating its operating performance for the following reasons:

  • HomeAway management uses Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow, non-GAAP net income and constant currency revenue in conjunction with GAAP financial measures as part of its assessment of its business and in communications with its board of directors concerning its financial performance;
  • Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow, non-GAAP net income and constant currency revenue provide consistency and comparability with HomeAway's past financial performance, facilitate period-to-period comparisons of operations, and also facilitate comparisons with other peer companies, many of which use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results;
  • Securities analysts use Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow, non-GAAP net income and constant currency revenue as supplemental measures to evaluate the overall operating performance of companies, and HomeAway management anticipates that its investor and analyst presentations will include Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow, non-GAAP net income and constant currency revenue; and
  • Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income exclude non-cash charges, such as depreciation, amortization and stock-based compensation, because such non-cash expenses in any specific period may not directly correlate to the underlying performance of HomeAway's business operations and can vary significantly between periods.

Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow, non-GAAP net income and constant currency revenue should not be reviewed in isolation. Investors should consider them in addition to, and not as substitutes for, measures of HomeAway's financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP. HomeAway's Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow, non-GAAP net income or constant currency revenue may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies because other companies may not calculate such measures in the same manner as HomeAway does. Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow, non-GAAP net income and constant currency revenue have limitations as analytical tools. As an example, although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated or amortized will often need to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow and non-GAAP net income do not reflect any cash requirements for these replacements. In addition, none of these measures reflect future requirements for contractual obligations.

Further limitations of Adjusted EBITDA include:

  • this measure does not reflect changes in working capital;
  • this measure does not reflect interest income or interest expense; and
  • this measure does not reflect cash requirements for income taxes.

Reconciliation tables of the most comparable GAAP financial measures to the non-GAAP measures used in this press release are included at the end of this release.

Use of Key Business Metrics

We define a paid listing as an advertisement for a property paid via subscription or on a performance basis and displayed on one or more websites in our marketplace. Although listings may be displayed on multiple sites, a paid listing is counted only one time on its native HomeAway brand, or HomeAway website from which the listing originated. Subscription-based paid listings are purchased in advance by property owners or managers as a form of advertising to promote their vacation rentals to prospective travelers on one or more of our websites, typically for one year. Performance-based paid listings allow property owners and managers to list a property with no initial upfront fees and, instead, pay us commissions on traveler bookings or fees on traveler inquiries.

Average revenue per subscription listing is computed by HomeAway as subscription listing revenue for the period divided by the average of paid subscription listings at the beginning and end of the period and then annualizing the result. The price of listings varies by website and can include various additional fees associated with listing enhancements. The average revenue per listing may fluctuate based on the timing and nature of acquisitions, impacting the number of average paid listings for a given period; changes in HomeAway's base pricing; uptake of listing enhancements; changes in the pricing of enhancements; and changes in brand mix. For the purposes of providing a foreign exchange neutral growth rate, subscription revenue per listing is calculated at prior year monthly foreign exchange rates.

The renewal rate for HomeAway's subscription listings at the end of any period is defined as the percentage of those paid listings that were active at the end of the period ended twelve months prior that are still active as of the end of the reported period. Unique property subscription listings that are removed from property managers' accounts and subsequently replaced with new subscription listings within the same property manager's account listings are not considered as renewals in HomeAway's renewal rate calculation. HomeAway includes most subscription listings in its calculation of renewal rate with the exception of subscription listings sold by BedandBreakfast.com, Toprural.com, and Bookabach.co.nz, which will remain excluded until HomeAway can further develop its database system. HomeAway excludes pay-for-performance listings from its renewal rate analysis since they are not sold on a subscription basis.

Visits to websites are measured by HomeAway through the use of a variety of tools, including solutions from third parties such as Omniture and Google Analytics.
